For recording artist, actor, and performer Reid Soria, Autism Sings is the culmination of years spent overcoming the odds. Diagnosed with autism at the age of 3, Reid was never expected to be able to communicate or connect with the world around him. Now 32, Reid has channeled his talents and sheer grit into an unprecedented story of hope. And in finding his own voice, Reid has found a new voice for autism and is communicating and connecting beyond what was once considered possible. Follow the story and become a part of the dream. When words fail, Autism Sings!
--Autism Sings, 2014--
WELCOME to Autism Sings !
We were recently contacted by singer/songwriter Steven O'Connor from Liverpool about a song he had written and recorded. Steven wrote:
"This song was inspired by a young lady by the name of Samantha or Sam as she likes to be called. Sam has Autism and when she was a child her parents were told they may have to learn sign language as Sam would probably not be able to communicate through speech. Well! Sam sings and paints and now writes, the more I got to know her the more taken I was by her sheer determination to achieve, Sam has fantastic support from her parents and her brother Andie who also has autism, she keeps improving all the time and shows a great understanding of music, so this song is an accolade to her and all on the autism spectrum, this song is their voice I hope, and may help break down the barriers, misconception and ignorance that surrounds autism in the world today and I believe Sam will go on to achieve much more."

Reid provided the entertainment for the Bright Horizons Fish Fry Fundraiser at the Destin Elks Lodge. The crowd was awesome and enjoyed the performance. Left to right, Reid pulled his sister out of the crowd and got her to sing along. Gary presented Reid a set of diving fins, goggles, and bag for his diving exploits, and Reid doing what he does best. "Gotta live your life like Reid Soria could call you up to the stage to sing back-up at any time."

Reid just received this in today's mail and he was super excited when he saw it. Thank you Joe Bentry and Donna Graham from Autism Sings Canada for sending this to our guy and making his day!
Recently, Reid and his Autism Sings team had one of the most amazing experiences we have ever had since the inception of Autism Sings, LLC. At the invitation of teacher Leeanne Tally, we were invited to Margaret K. Lewis school in Panama City. It was far and beyond whatever we could have imagined it to be. The welcome we received from this group of students and teachers was just one of the warmest and most loving experiences we have ever had. We were met by a group of students who presented us with a basket of goodies and then helped us carry our equipment to the auditorium. They were open, friendly, and inquisitive. Our audience was engaged and sang and danced, and cheered with every song Reid sang. It was amazing! They had been preparing for Reid's visit the entire week and had worked hard to earn the privilege to attend the show. So by the time Reid arrived, the excitement was at fever pitch. And Reid brought a fun, exciting performance that kept the students rocking, but more than that, he brought a message of hope to these special students. They were able to see that here was someone just like them who was working hard to make his dreams come true...that there are possibilities that they can imagine for their own lives. This was an experience that we won't soon forget and it's just good to be reminded of why we do what we do. Rocky Akins, thanks so much for being there. You've been such a tremendous supporter and promoter of Reid's work and we love and appreciate you very much. It was so good to see you again. Leeanne, teachers and students of MK Lewis, thank you for one of the most exciting experiences of our lives! We love you all! Due to privacy, we couldn't photograph and post any students' pictures, but maybe later Mrs. Tally will send us some of the cleared photos. But we do have photos of the beautiful cards the students made for Reid. They are priceless and we will certainly treasure them!
Reid sang a set at the Conecuh Sausage Festival at the Evergreen AL Airport in October. The Festival was at a new venue due to the growth of the event over the last several years. Evergreen Mayor Peter Wolff III, Detroit Webb, Chris, and other members of of the Evergreen Chamber of Commerce made us feel welcome and invited Reid to return to the 2018 Edition of the Festival. See you all next year !
Autism Sings has developed an Autism Awareness program and it is especially designed for schools and students. The program includes Jo Soria, RN, discussing autism and how it may relate to students, discussing how we can learn to reach out to those who may have various differences, encouraging students to try new experiences that will help broaden their horizons, and encouraging students to work hard to overcome obstacles. Included in the program were Reid singing a few relevant songs, and interaction with the students as they sang and danced along with him. Our multimedia presentation includes PowerPoint slides of Reid overcoming his own obstacles and a short video clip of Reid singing and dancing with the Fred Astaire Studio dancers at the Mattie Kelly Arts Theater. Last school year, the Okaloosa School District Title I Office invited Autism Sings to present our program to four schools and invited us back for the current school year (2017-2018). Like the previous presentations, this year's program has met with rave reviews from students and teachers. The goal of our program is to reach a young generation about autism, acceptance, and working hard to realize their dreams. Contact us if you would like to discuss the 45-60 minute program for your school, camp, or event.
